Abstract

The 17m diameter MAGIC telescope will become operational in mid-2003. Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) known to be TeV γ–ray emitters will be observed by the telescope in its initial phase. But, due to the high sensitivity measur- ing fluxes and low Energy Threshold, MAGIC will be able to observe very high redshifted AGNs which have remained undetected by the present Cherenkov Tele- scopes. The EGRET AGNs and Constamante-Ghisellini T eV BL Lacs candidates are taken as a reference to perform a study of source observability by evaluating their fluxes at the MAGIC energy detection range.
